Prior to accepting you as a client, we will first assess whether we are lawfully
able to provide you with service. Further, prior to accepting you as a client,
we will search our client database to ensure that no conflicts of interest
exist. If we find that a conflict of interest exists or if we are otherwise not
able to provide you with service, you will have the opportunity to download your
questionnaire through the HornsteinTrust.com website before any representative
of Hornstein Law Offices sees your confidential information. You may take the
questionnaire to another appropriate law firm of your choice to provide service
to you. We will then delete your account after sending notification to you. If
you know that Hornstein Law Offices is handling a case in which you are an
Trust system or communicating with us unless it is through your attorney.
The information you enter into the Hornstein Trust system will be used by
Hornstein Law Offices and related companies for the purpose of providing
services to you related to your estate planning issues, including but not
limited to the preparation of your Trust, Powers of Attorney, Wills, Deeds to
Real Property and other funding documents to properly fund your Trust, and the
analysis or your financial strategy to protect your family via tax and/or
insurance planning. None of your information will be sold to third parties.
The Hornstein Trust system may gather your personal information for the
purpose of preparing documents for you. Representatives of Hornstein Law Offices
and related companies may have access to such information only on a need to know
basis. Your personal information will be used for the purposes of communicating
with you and for providing you with the quality service only by Hornstein Law
Offices and related companies and representatives.
After you have a Trust prepared, you will likely need to disclose certain
personal information in order to fund assets into your Trust. For example, in
order to fund your bank account into your Trust, you may need to provide a
Certification of Trust to the bank. The Certification of Trust will provide to
the bank information needed to open an account in the name of the Trust, such as
the name of the Trust and who the Trustee is (or Trustees if there is more than
one Trustee). The Trustee is the person who manages the Trust and you may likely
make yourself the Trustee of your Trust. The bank will also need to know your
social security number that you are using for your Trust. Further, certain
personal information becomes public record when documents are filed with the
federal or state government, or with a court. For example, if you own real
property such as your house, in order to fund your house into your Trust, you
will need to record a deed of your property into your Trust. When you record a
deed, the information on the deed will be a public record with the county
recorder, and such information including the name(s) of the Trustee(s) and the
does not cover any disclosures made by you or third parties.
